The blood test will check for:
- Total cholesterol levels
- LDL (low-density lipoprotein) level i.e. “bad” cholesterol
- HDL (high-density lipoprotein) level i.e. “good” cholesterol

WebMD said that starting your day with an avocado can release “oleic acid” in your body, “which helps lower bad cholesterol in your bloodstream”.
Avocados are a versatile fruit that can be spread on toast, paired with tomatoes, and salads.
Another treat to include into your diet is nuts; specifically almonds, walnuts and pistachios that can help reduce bad cholesterol.
